Within an energetic, high-demand, service-oriented religion like Mormonism, it is so easy for us to lose sight that the purpose of our lives, including our church lives, is spiritual and personal self-transformation, coming to (re-)discover and grow into our highest selves as eternal, divine spirits. Too often we find ourselves simply going through the motions of a spiritual life, living out of pre-scripted and seldom-examined stories and worldviews. We seek a place at the grand banquet table we’ve heard we are invited to yet discover the same basic pot-luck fare. Where is the nutrition?

If you feel as if you are spiritually starving and long to (re)connect with God, Spirit, Love, your True Self, please come join us at this retreat. It will be co-led by Latter-day Faith podcast host Dan Wotherspoon, life coach and highly sought-after speaker Jana Spangler, and writer, activist, and insightful teacher Jody England Hansen. But YOU and the others in attendance will be in the real driver’s seat. Let’s discuss faith, belief, spiritual journeys, Jesus (and what he was really teaching rather than the water-downed version that has come down to us today), God, Holy Ghost, myth, ritual, prayer, discernment, spiritual practices, and more! Whatever you have in mind, we’re excited to dive into!

In choosing to attend, you are saying you want “more”—more depth, richness, understanding, and experiencing! More YOU! We can’t wait for you to join us!

______

In addition to being able to attend the retreat in person, you will also have access to three monthly calls through Zoom in which we can continue where we have left off!

The retreat includes lunch and dinner on Saturday the 12th, and lunch on Sunday the 13.th

  • Friday begins at 6pm
  • Saturday runs from 9am until whenever (with all the evening portion consisting of relaxation and fun)
  • Sunday goes from 9am to 5pm.

If you have any questions about the retreat, where you might stay (if needed), etc., please contact Dan Wotherspoon at dan@latterdayfaith.org

Cost: $275 per person; $425 per couple (even two friends or family members deciding to register together).

SCHOLARSHIPS:

If you cannot afford to pay to attend, or can only swing some of the cost, please inquire abut partial or full scholarships and volunteering. We are working hard to encourage people to donate funds for others to attend, and we are happy to put you on a waiting list to see what might unfold.

If you would like to donate toward scholarships to those who cannot otherwise attend, please click below! Thank you!

We look forward to seeing you at this event! We know it will be something everyone will really enjoy as well as receiving great perspectives, renewed energies, and making new friends!

  1. Would this be appropriate for a mother and son (age 19)? Would it be possible to get registered than send a cashiers check to a physical address?
    Thank you for your consideration,

  2. My husband and I are so looking forward to the retreat. We were a little disappointed with the changes but after listening to the last podcast, we are still feeling led to attend so we’re trusting that we will experience the richness we’ve been seeking as we have just by listening to Mormon Matters and Latter-day Faith. Thanks Dan for all you do!
